Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
Every morning, A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
With his new novel, David Levithan has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate readers as they begin to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s world, as A and Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day.
If it’s written by David Levithan then I’m going to read it and I’m going to love it. There’s not much mystery when I pick up one of his books. I know to expect something amazing and they always exceed my expectations. Every Day was no exception. As soon as I read the authors note* at the beginning I knew this was something different.
Every Day takes a very unique concept, waking up in a different body everyday and add in elements that you would probably never consider. Like waking up in an addicts body, or waking up with grief that’s so fresh that you feel it even though it’s not part of your life. It also explores how a person’s exterior can affect how you feel about them. Even if you would like to think it doesn’t.
Every Day is very much a book about love and all the little factors we never think about when it comes to making those feelings work for us. The main character, known simply as A, may be in a different body everyday but you definitely get to know him/her. I’m going to go ahead and call A a he for the sake of this review but A was neither female or male.
I loved how kind A was. He was a little lost and that was so understandable. But he was also incredibly strong and insightful. The lengths that he went to for Rhiannon were great to see. He was a wonderful main character.
Not only do you get A and Rhiannon’s story but you also get little glimpses into the lives of the bodies that A ends up in. I thought that was beyond creative. You never know who A will wake up in next or what situation he will find himself in. It made the book a page turner.
As you can see I loved the book. That’s no surprise though, right? If you’re in the mood for a breath of fresh air kind of book then I highly recommend Every Day. It’s a marvelously unique read.
